Wow, so I’ve neglected my blog for pretty much an entire year now.
Time for a change and some updating.
First off: some snaps and a clip from a recent review….
The virtuosity that J Mascis displays when he’s on stage is unlike that of many other guitarist in music. As he performed to the Marble Factory on Wednesday night, Masics remained stoic and nearly motionless as his Martin guitar emoted joyful, indie-folk hymns and powerful, nimble epitaphs.
With Dinosaur Jr and other projects, Mascis plays off his counterparts while melding and creating a unique indie-rock style. However, on his solo records he reveals a raw and complex musicianship where, in addition to his signature din and shine, feels sporadic and oscillates between acoustic, electric and chaotic.
